I got the rebuilt NH on my TT and it does run better.
I took a differnt carb than was on the truck and went thru it. I drilled out the brass plugs and then just bumped a short piece of brazing rod back in the hole after it was cleaned by ultrasonic cleaner and so forth.
I did run into a issue with the pins that hold the NH name tag on. The holes in the carb were bigger than the pins sent. There was still copper around the edges of the holes to so i know I didn't drill to big. I just sharpened some brazing rod and punched a couple pieces in and the tag is on fine now.
The difference I noticed was smoother acceleration going up hill by the new carb as opposed to the old 1. It was to dang cold and windy to go more than a couple miles road test but it runs better.

What kind of needle and seat did you use in your rebuild. Any problems with it? Thanks

Was the old carb an NH as well ? Mine came with the L-4
Kingston, and when swapped with an NH, now goes like a
scalded cat (comparatively speaking, of course).

The standard original design needle.
I figured millions rolled off the line at Ford,I would just go back to the original. I had a minor drip on the old carb and cut the fuel off when parked. It was a problem with the gasket under the seat I think.
I tried a grosse jet on 1 for the little pickup project and it was a flop.I took a hammer to it and chunked that #*#*# thing once i got it out of the carb.
Anyhow I had a NH on the truck all ready. But it had been several years since I put it on .
I had never drilled the plugs out on 1 and this was the first 1 I thought I would try it on.

I have a chance to get a brass carb, a kingston of some sort. But I don't know if I want to use it or not.It looks like some of the 1's Stan rebuilds.

I am trying to imagine what a 100-year-old cat burger would taste like.
